Gujarati Farsans recipes
Last Updated : Dec 27,2017
Farsans are the delight of Gujarati cuisine. Not only are a wide variety of farsaans or snacks prepared on special occasions and to entertain guests, but also enjoyed with tea on any normal day. Indeed, what a mind-boggling array of farsaans there are – steamed ones, deep-fried ones, tava-cooked ones, spicy ones, simple ones… the list is endless!
This section introduces you to traditional treats like Patra, Nylon Khaman Dhokla, Khandvi , Methi Na Dhebra , Moong Dal Dhokla, Dakor Na Gota etc.
These Nylon Khaman Dhokla are so soft and spongy that the reference to nylon is really apt! What is more, this recipe is also very easy to implement if you follow these simple instructions properly and practice it a bit. The addition of fruit salt to the batter, and water to the tempering, are the two main factors responsible for the super-soft and spongy nature of this dhokla.
